    Hi Folks,

    I've been wondering about this for 40 years. I'm 51. As a kid on federal holidays there would be no school. At the least you could TV, and the broadcasters would show special movies knowing kids were home all day.

    So there was this European movie in color and I'll say it was circa '73 that was in English with these kids that all had cool super small displacement (like maybe even 50cc - 100cc), but full size dirt bikes (CZ, KTM, Jawa etc..(think big fins and fiberglass tanks and high rise fender and 21" or 23" front wheels with skinny tire) and they rode them to each others houses etc., and around like I would've ridden a bicycle. These guys lived in an Isle of Man type of scenery. This probably made for TV European movie left a cool impression of MX bikes as a kid. I'd love to know what movie that might've been.

    Any ideas?

    Loved that movie, but not even close.

    I was really hoping someone would've been able to identify this insignificant flick I was seeking. I just dug on the Pentonish bikes in it.
